A Commitment to Excellence in Stone Masonry
Smith Masonry has more than 100 years of experience in the stone working and masonry trades and have won many awards for their work. Several of the buildings they have created incorporate stone in subtle ways, adding color here or texture there, requiring incredible precision. Others have extensive use of stone providing the building with a strong and vibrant look, one that states to others an intent to exist and persist with style.
Beyond aesthetic appeal, stone is known in masonry for its durability and strength. It’s incredibly resistant to weathering, erosion, and fire, and can last hundreds of years with very little maintenance. In general, there are two types of stone masonry: rubble masonry and ashlar masonry. Rubble masonry uses rough, irregular stones that replicate how they’d be found in nature. Ashlar masonry cut and dressed stones that are all of the same size and shape. Both have their own aesthetic and functional appeal. You can see some of the great work we’ve done with stone below:
